Re: tru_tags: A tagging plugin for textpattern

Forgive me for not reading the last fifty pages of this thread, but I was hoping to establish tagging for the link items in my Txp database, as opposed to the articles. Can tru_tags be used for this?

Thanks,
Jenn

Re: tru_tags: A tagging plugin for textpattern

Hi it’s me again. I decided to use articles to act like link elements and I have tru_tags up and running. It’s lovely!

One question (for now): How do I print out the name of the tag on the archive page for articles bearing that tag?

As you found, this excellent plugin does articles only. If you do want to experiment with tags directly on your links you could try smd_tags. I’ve been trialling it for a few months and although it’s still beta-ish nobody has reported any major issues yet (mind you, maybe only 3 people have used it!)

I’m looking for willing volunteers to find out if it truly does what it says on the tin and report on its success (or otherwise). I have a few modifications up my sleeve to do with the way tags are entered and a few new tags to add when I get a chance to finalise them, but if you have any ideas for improvements so it works how you want it, feel free to shout.

RTfineM: txp:tru_tags_tag_parameter (Changed the rude ‘F’ to a better ‘fine’. Extra edit for OpalCat)

<span class="tru_tags_tag_parameter"><txp:tru_tags_tag_parameter striphyphens="1" /></span>

Jesus, don’t be rude about it or anything. For some of us, the “FM” can be a little daunting and sometimes what a given tag or parameter means/does is not actually completely obvious just from looking at it. Wow, I really hate attitudes like yours.

Re: tru_tags: A tagging plugin for textpattern

Yeah, I discovered the elusive tag cited above sometime around 2am, whilst trolling through the entirety of this thread for code snippets.

Still having a few problems with the categorized archive page described in the documentation (i.e. Txp doesn’t seem to be recognizing txp:tru_tags_archive) — but I’ll keep working on it.

This is an excellent extension to a really exciting CMS. Thank you so much, truist, for all your good and hard work on its behalf.

Hey, come on, you should know that I am not rude and that I don’t have a bad attitude when it comes to helping people with Textpattern information (as the code example shows pretty well). For me receiving a RTFM is a concrete hint that the information is in the documentation and not a personal attack.

Back to the RTfineM (extra edit for sensitive OpalCats): The tru_tags documentation is easy to read and it is also necessary to read it to understand the tags.

Re: tru_tags: A tagging plugin for textpattern

I think “RTFM” is the equivalent of saying “Hey, moron, quit wasting our time” and unless it’s made in an obviously joking manner between two people who have a history of teasing each other in that kind of way, it is always a personal attack. I got nothing to indicate otherwise from your post, and I think it’s out of line.

I’m an intelligent person and I do read the documentation that comes with things, but I often find myself asking “stupid” questions because I’m an artist, not a programmer, and my brain doesn’t process stuff “that way” and so what may be bleedingly obvious to you may not stand out at all to me. Sometimes it takes a nudge to make the light go on. Just because someone has a question does not mean they haven’t read and tried to understand the documentation.

Re: tru_tags: A tagging plugin for textpattern

Katherine let’s stop that now please. I am German and my history is usenet and multiple bulletin board systems where RTFM was considered as a synonym for ‘frankly speaking you should consult the documentation for a well documented answer before generally asking for features here’. And yes, a single RTFM without further hint or help is rude but still marks/makes the point.

But I am willing to excuse for my bad behavior because of insulting you (and maybe others too) which was definitely not my aim/intention.

@all: Sorry for the pretty unnecessary Off Topic discussion in this thread.

Re: tru_tags: A tagging plugin for textpattern

This is the last I will say about it, but I think you have missed my point, which is that you should not assume that someone has not already read the documentation just because they didn’t understand or grasp something from it and are asking for guidance. I know that in my case, I can read the documentation, and then have questions anyway that I can either ask help on and work through in a short period of time, or I can laboriously re-re-re-read and struggle to find and understand some detail from the documentation over the course of several hours—and even then be uncertain. I guess I misunderstood the point of a help forum, since apparently it is only to be used when after countless hours of solo struggling have proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that there is no documentation of your problem.

Honestly if I’d come across this thread at the beginning, I would never have begun using Textpattern. And I’m not alone in finding your initial post dismissive and hostile. I’ve had off-board correspondence sent my way agreeing with me.
